D.I.D is the number one motorcycle chain in the world. D.I.D chains are used by factory races teams from all manufacturers in race series everywhere.
Pinning your bike out of every turn might tear apart the stock chain, but D.I.D and their 520NZ chain will not let you, or your race for first, down.
- For machines originally equipped with non-O-ring chains.
- Solid rollers.
- Shot-peened parts.
- High cylindrical and roundness accuracy.
- Exacting tolerances provide low friction.
- DHA pin treatment - hard chromium-carbide layer formed on pin surface for exceptional strength and wear resistance.
- Special alloy steel with extended riveted bushing "anti-kink" design.
- Highest quality non-O-ring chain in overall combined performance.
- Up to 19% higher tensile strength; average tensile strength of 8,220 pounds.
- Wear life index: 410.
- Rated for up to a 250cc bike.
- Weight (per 100 links): 3.54 pounds.
- Includes a clip-style master link.
- Note: Non-sealed chains require more regular maintenance than sealed (O-ring, X-ring) versions and are mainly recommended for off-road use.
D.I.D's exclusive SDH (Super DH) pin treatment is the secret behind the superior performance of the NZ Series chains. This high-tech pin treatment forms an extremely hard chromium carbide layer on the pin's surface while maintaining a soft inner core. SDH treated pins have extreme impact strength while maintaining outstanding shock absorption. This treatment creates a chain with anti-oxidation properties and superior wear resistance against invasion of hard foreign materials.
Seems like a nice chain but the master link is so tight I had to press it together with a C-clamp!!!
I installed chain and competed in a 2 hour hare scrambles and the chain does not need an adjustment yet. I'm impressed!
The chain hasn't stretched much, but it does have a fair amount of side to side play after only a few rides. Seems pretty solid otherwise. Master link was a PITA to install. I literally had to use a round file to make the holes larger so that it would fit together. Probably wouldn't buy another one...
This is an awesome chain! I have ridden many hours and through the mud and the muck. It is holding up great. Even after many hours of riding, I haven't had to adjust it at all.
Heavier duty chain, though I have a heavier one on my other bike. Not bad for the price, but I would prefer something a bit more beefier.
Definitely not a bad purchase for the money.
I suppose I can't fault the chain cause I was bein cheap. Got the "Heavy Duty" thinking it would last longer than the regulars, but my YZ450F stretches the heck out of it everytime I ride it. Spec is 40-50mm of slack in chain I've gone to setting it just under 40mm and it stretches past 50mm after every ride! My advice is to spend the extra $50 and get a nice o-ring chain if you have a hot 450, would probably last a long time on a stock 250 though. Never had so much trouble getting a master link to snap together, don't know why either?
Throw away your factory chain and buy this one! have 5 rides on it and it didnt stretch at all.
After four rides I have only had to tighted the chain one time. So far it lets me ripe and tear without concern. Awesome product.
I kept on breaking chains on my atv, i broke at least one every summer, i broke another chain in winter of 2008 and got this chain, ive had this chain ever since then. its a great chain
This is the wrong chain for a YZ450F, but "520" and "heavy duty" told me otherwise.
I've had the chain for 3-months and probably 7-rides. It stretch so much that I removed two links; and it's still growing.
just for the information if you read the think called instructions that come with the chain your supposed to wash off the wax (oil like) coating off of the chain in mineral spirits before install that stuff is only on there from the manufaturar to prevent rusting while it is still in the box. that stuff can severely shorten the life of your chain.
Very fast shipping
Well the shipping didn't take long and when i received the chain, it was well lubed and ready to install. i have a 2004 KX250F with allot of engine modifications. so its pushing about 38-40HP with tire shredding torque and i was really surprised to see this chain last me as long as it did. which was about a month because the sprocket snapped and broke a few links..
This chain is sweet, they say it comes pre-stretched and it actually does. I put it on and then raced with it, and it stretched VERY little if any. Would definitley recommend. I have it on a CRF450.
Just put it on...Seems like a good strong chain...Already seem more durable than the stock...Will buy again when this one wears out. Great Price.
good stuff cant beat the price
Great choice of chains. Doesn't stretch as much as the standard chain yet not as heavy as the o-ring.
